ATTENTION !!! Problems with tinypic


For those of you using [sign in to see URL] to host images we have a problem. The site is corrupted with malware. I logged in today to upload some pics of my Jeep for the Wrangler forum and got a malware attempt. I had to hard reboot and ran a virus scan. I then logged in again to grab the img links and got the attempt again.
Just wanted to let you all know.

'Appreciate the cowls-up Ed, but thus far Tiny Pic is working fine. There was a 2 day period around 3 weeks ago when it was "down" and the photo links did not work, but now running OK.

Dave, Since you're not having this issue, maybe it's something that my PC is open to that yours isn't. Would you be willing to contact them and let them know of the problem I had last weekend? Maybe they can offer a fix. Appears to be a pop up that won't allow me to shut it off. Each time it's happened I had to hard shut the computer down and then a detailed anti virus scan finds nothing.

Appreciate if you could check this for me.

All I do is ignore all the pop-ups and keep adding photos. The pop-ups are just their way to try to earn some advertising funds while providing free photo hosting. Perhaps I don't get many pop-ups as they can detect I ignore all pop-ups.

Ed, did you tried to use "adblock plus" ? Works for me with most pop-ups.I use Google Chrome, and you even can get away with banners and videos in Yahoo if you use the manual block.

I second Adblock plus and really suggest Imgur for image hosting. 8 years running hasn't failed me yet. ;)

Re: ATTENTION !!! Problems with tinypic


Thanks guys, I will try adblock. The "pop up" I was getting was telling me my windows directory was corrupted or something like that and it wouldn't let me close it or so anything else until I did a hard shut down (which isn't really good to do). I also have an Imgur acct set up for this place but they already say in their TOS that they don't support 3rd party hosting so after the photobucket debockle I'm reluctant to put a bunch of stuff there.

Oh, and I use multiple browsers depending on what I'm doing. I use IE for most stuff, Chrome for a few things and as much as I don't like it I have to use fiefox for 1 thing (uploading data from my Insulin Pump, that doesn't work with IE or Chrome, ugh).
